* Social Responsibility
Maranatha University seeks to pass on to students, a passion for Faith, Academic Excellence, Integrity, Solid Christian Character, Godliness and Leadership. The student life in and out of campus is structured to actualize the all-encompassing mission of the University which is devoted to creating conducive and dynamic teaching, learning, and research environment that equips our graduates with Christ-like character, positive attitude and sterling leadership qualities in many disciplines to make a difference globally. The University brings on board academic, spiritual, physical and social dimensions of training which, indeed, are the ingredients for the total man development concept.
In Maranatha University Lagos, character education is considered fundamental for becoming a celebrated graduate. Academic excellence comes with huge rewards, but if your academic excellence does not intermix proportionately with sound godly character, it may be hard to epitomize the Maranatha University vision. It is for this reason that Maranatha University places a lot of importance on total obedience and strict adherence to rules and regulations governing the peaceful co-existence of the students within and outside of the University.
You would have been trained to have a disciplined lifestyle at the end of your stay at Maranatha University. Most importantly, you will be empowered and equipped to live a sound Christian life in anticipation of the second coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We, therefore, appeal that you kindly concentrate on productive efforts in your academic, religious and social wellbeing that will mark you out as a sound Christian graduate equipped and empowered to impact your world positively.
It is wise to counsel you to take time out to familiarize yourself with the policies, regulations and procedures articulated in our Student Information Handbook. The book contains all the vital information that guides your religious, social and academic interactions. The handbook is however subject to periodic reviews to ensure that it does not run behind new paradigms in the ever-changing world.
It is vital to note that Knowledge is like a garden. If it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested. Your parents have seen the indispensability of education before sending you to the University. Your parents deserve your appreciation of this clear fact. Do not misuse this golden opportunity. On behalf of the entire Maranatha University community, I welcome you to our main campuses at Lekki and Okota, Lagos State, Nigeria.
Accept my best wishes for a successful and all-encompassing academic journey at Maranatha University in the precious name of Jesus Christ. You shall fulfil destiny in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
